God gave Humans brain and the ability to think. So my question is it right or wrong to question the creations and doings of God by a human?
I mean will it be considered a sin?
Please help me out, I am bit confused.

Below is a statement said by Swami Vivekananda in front of his Irish disciple Sister Nivedita (here)
Let none regret that they were difficult to convince! I fought my Master for six long years, with the result that I know every inch of the way! Every inch of the way!
Noticing word 'fought' here, which means intense questioning before accepting anything. And it is evident from Swamiji's boyhood nature as described (here)
Inquisitive, alert, and intellectually honest, he possessed an open mind and demanded rational proof before accepting any conclusion as valid. As a loyal member of the Brahmo Samaj he was critical of image worship and the rituals of the Hindu religion.
So, it seems easy to follow that Swamiji used to ask a good number of questions about God and His doings to the Great Master (I also read it in a book that Naren(Swamiji, as called by Sri Ramakrishna) often asked questions about Sri Radha and Sri Krishna's Vrindavan Rasleela to His Master considering it unethical and Sri Ramakrishna would not deny such questions instead answered them considering emotions of Sri Radha and Her friends to meet the Supreme one. Though, I could not find it anywhere online).
And about reaction of Sri Ramakrishna to such questions, here is the answer:
People, however, noticed the growth of an intimate relationship between the loving, patient, and forgiving teacher and his imperious and stubborn disciple. The Master never once asked Naren to abandon reason.
That is, Sri Ramakrishna would not deny Naren's questions.Therefore, from this great Guru-Disciple relationship, it can be concluded that questioning God and His doings is not a sin in Hinduism.
